The last 2 weeks have been full of energetic fun between the Hydrotherapy pool and our Rebound Therapy sessions on the trampoline. Our new P1s have been showing us their delight and fully participating in our activities. We have worked hard to ensure our fabulous newbies have had the best start with varied experiences. Our photos show exactly how they responded. Enjoy 🙂

Today Primary A embarked on one of our 50 Things To Do challenges…we had a Pooh Stick Race! We found sticks, dropped them into the water, and then rushed to the other side of the bridge to see if our stick made it through!
